Cooking is a commonsense practice, not alchemy. Listening and watching closely while you cook will reveal a richly shaded language understood by all the senses - the degrees of a simmer, the aroma of a roast telling you it is done, the stages of elasticity of kneaded dough, the earthy scent of a vegetable just pulled from the ground - it is everything to mind these details. This is cooking. ~ Chez Panisse Cookbook

This weekend was parents' weekend which means I got to see my family! I really missed them. And it also means - really good food!
Both Saturday and Sunday morning we went to one of my favorite breakfast places Marigold Kitchen.
Steel cut Oatmeal Pancakes with Walnuts, Dried Cranberries, and Orange Citrus Butter
(these were possibly the best pancakes I've ever had!)

Omelette with Artichokes, Oven Roasted Tomatoes, and Asiago Cheese
Omelette with Zucchini, Oven Roasted Red Peppers, and Goat Cheese
French Toast with Almonds and Fresh Berries, drizzled with Whipped Cream
